Heart Breakfast with Jamie & Emma 6am - 9am
It wasn't so long ago that his father Prince Charles was described as "quite buff" and seen as a heartthrob for women across the UK. Now, as Prince William turns 34, it's quite clear who the real hottie is.
Stripping down to a wet suit, Prince William showed off his kingly shoulders and toned legs when accepting presidency of the British Sub-Aqua Club (BSAC). The handsome royal will be taking over the role from his father Charles.
The Duchess of Cambridge is also a member of the BSAC, but vice chairman Tom Marshall revealed William doesn't like diving in cold waters. He said: "[William] admitted that he prefers warm water diving but clearly has a passion for the sport. It is one of the most exciting sports you can be involved in."
Camilla Parker-Bowles also turned out to support Prince Charles at the event in London's Oasis Leisure Centre to watch him hand over his 40-year presidency of the BSAC to the Duke of Cambridge.
Looking a little bemused after being described as 'quite buff' by Eugene Farrell, The chairman of BSAC Prince Charles was happy to know he had been paid a compliment when being shown a bare-chested photo of himself at a BSAC event in the 1970s.
The Prince's father, the Duke of Edinburgh, was president of the BSAC before William, and it's been tradition for each generation of royals to pass down their love of scuba-diving to the next. Prince Charles said of the Duke: "I threw him in the swimming pool on occasions. Instead of putting him off, it enthused him."
The British Sub-Aqua Club (BSAC) event in London aims to encourage diving among young people.
It wasn't long before the Duke was challenged to a race by a group of eight-year-olds but he sportingly let the children win.
Active from a young age, William had trained with BSAC in addition to the Army at Fort Bovisand near Plymouth, before heading out with the organisation's local groups in Anglesey.
His fellow diver Tom Billingham , 17, who dives with the Dudley Dolphins, said: "[William] was a natural diver and had clearly done it many times before. He appeared to be really enjoying himself."
The Duke is hoping to pass down his love of snorkelling to his 12-month-old son, George. He said: "I hope one day my son might follow in our footsteps. At the moment bath time is quite painful but hopefully donning a snorkel and mask might calm him down."
